The recent activity on the Zero Wing board reminded me of something. In level four, there are several hidden Toaplan mascots. If you don't kill them, you can collect them with the tractor beam. Is Pipiru just an easter egg, or does he have some special function (for extra points or whatnot)?

You can find him:
1) At the start of the level. pic
2) To the left of the red ship. pic
3) Just past the second "BH99." pic
4) Above the long horizontal pole. pic
5) In the water shortly after the boss detaches. pic

Each mascot is worth 10,000 points if you grab them. You only get 100 points if you shoot them. I tried finishing the stage while holding one of them but nothing happens.

Also, if you hold UP when you finish stage 4, you get this:

Thanks to Gemant for all this info.

I can't believe I never noticed that 10k bonus. :o Probably because there's no audio cue when the points are added.
